    He could start being a polka dot flying cow too for that matter.

    How does his opinion of sponsor boycotts make him a republican exactly??

    This diary should be titled, "It will never be good enough to meet my ideological litmus tests to be a TRUE progressive so everyone is a republican"

      someone put up a block from his wiki showing he was a gop at one time.

        I voted for George Bush Sr when I was 18 because I didn't know any better. Am I still allowed in the cool club??

        You are acting like a purity troll and firing the latest shot in the circular firing squad.

        If you would have dialed the LEVEL of condemnation down a few notches you had a valid point. Going full throated banshee puts this over the top on the purity meter.

        Iow, we on the Left can criticize each other without condemning each other. And that goes from Obama down to the lowliest commenter on Dkos.

        Your title condemns Schultz. No nuance, no consideration of his good points....Hannity's BFF.

        Boo.

        I blame Rove for lowering our discourse to the all or nothing level you engage in here. But it is up to us to re-raise that level.

          as he was if it were not for he constant drumbeat of outrage from Limbaugh, Hannity, and the rest of thse people. Ed teaming up with Hannity against Media Matters, makes him an enabler at the very least.
          I don't know, but my Mom taught me, with every right comes a responsiblity. I think it applies to Freedom of Speech, you can not tell lies, or misstate the truth, nor can you be responsible for feeding into a phony narrative, as these bastards did in 2008 with the whole Rev, Wright issue.

          The difference between the right and the left, is we call it as we see it, if it is causing some degree of success on the right they all get onboard with it. I like our way better. In the short term, their approach may seem more effective, but are we just in it for short term rewards? I don't think so, I think raising the discoure is a good thing, and something we should stive for and if Boycotts are our only tool, then boycotts it must be. Sorry Ed, but you are dead wrong on this one. As you have been many times before, I hate to burst anyone's balloon, but I can not bear to watch is show anymore.

            Wow.

            Ed used to be a republican, and he just may have a way of bringing some republicans to our way of thinking.  It doesn't happen overnight....like a light bulb goes off and someone decides to change their entire worldview.  It's why we're so fucking entrenched in our little purity worlds, right AND left.....caricatures of actual people.

            As for this "BFF" crap.....it was the TALKERS conference.  All the talkers want to protect their turf, as well they should.

            David Koch is fucking Longshanks, and Occupy is the real Braveheart.

            •  It is not about "purity" at all. I don't care if (0+ / 0-)

              Ed is a Democrat or a Republican, right is right and wrong is wrong. Truth be told, he is so predictable, and he bores me, along with his yelling, he is no better than some on the right. It seems to me, these people, the "TALKERS" only have the right of free speech, when we the people exhibit our right of free speech by talking and acting out boycott, then it is not right we are not allowed to do so, bullshit.
